I'll test this release for a week, then release 0.1 if I have no troubles.
Please try it and report your problems.
In this release, gnomecanvas can't be installed by whole 'make'.
All of the libs are installed by root 'make' program.
But only gnomecanvas/src/lib/gnomecanvas can't be installed.
you can install gnomecanvas itself only as follows:
$ cd gnomecanvas
$ ruby extconf.rb
$ make install
